VITILIGO

We know today that some people have a genetic tendency towards developing Vitiligo and that this disease is often related to other imunological diseases such as insulin-dependant diabetes, some kinds of anemia or others.

Vitíligo is very similar to an allergy developed “against ourselves and our pigmenting cells”, melanocytes. We destroy them “thinking they are foreign cells or bad cells.

Famous people with Vitiligo are Michael Jackson or King Richard Heart of Lion

TREATMENT

We combine ALL TREATMENTS in our patients

Inmunotherapy

Inmunotherapy: these drugs “regulate” or “inhibit” the aggression made by our immunlogical system against our needed melanocytes. Among these drugs are:
CORTICOSTEROIDS, TACROLIMUS, PIMECROLIMUS, como el ELIDEL o PROTOPIC. These are usually given topically and the patient can apply them at home for a long period of time.

Subcision

It means using a needle to penetrate into the skin and “move” healthy melanocytes from areas of the skin spared by the disease to ill skin
affected by vitiligo. This is very much used in Asia.

UV Laser, such as EXCIMER LASER or NARROW UVB BAND,

UVB light is used because it is the most powerful stimulant of pigmentation.

Phenylalanine

Is the precursos of Melanin, the pigment of our skin. Can be administered topically or orally. We use both ways in our clinic to improve results.
